Can prayer change God’s plan for your life?

That was the question on web site

It’s misleading.

There was one real good answer there, the same one I would give to the question.

God knows the end from the beginning, and we’ve been ordained from the beginning, because he always knew every decision all of us, from the beginning of the world to the end, would ever make, every turn any animal would make and everything else of course.

But within the Creation we have our own free will. He made plans around all of our decisions, and tweaked things of course to make sure that things go within the limits of his will. We are free but there are certain boundaries beyond which it is impossible to pass. For example, nobody can stop the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy, or make things –and people–in the world work contrary to the scripture. No matter what happens in any movie written by men of any type of persuasion, all is within his word.

The web site refers to the movie The Adjustment Bureau, which deals in matters of “fate” and “fate enforcer” spirits whose job it is to make sure people fulfill their fate.

You can throw “fate” in the trash can and instead live your life according to the will of God for you. You are free to go your own way but it’s never he best. But even within that, God knows how to fulfill Romans 8:28:

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
